SPG History

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. is celebrating the one year anniversary of SPG Pro, our award-winning loyalty program for meeting and travel professionals, by creating our richest offer yet for all of you!

To celebrate this exciting milestone and the success of SPG Pro, we are introducing: SPG Pro Double Double. SPG Pro Double Double offers our travel professional members the opportunity to earn double Starpoints® and double eligible nights toward elite status on groups, meetings and events booked through December 31, 2015, for arrival by December 31, 2016. SPG Pro Double Double provides members with the opportunity to earn event rewards twice as fast at all 1,200+ hotels and resorts worldwide, across all 10 Starwood brands.

We know that so many of you, our loyal travel professional partners, are booking group business now. Whether it be milestone events or destination weddings or any other block of rooms for celebration, you are helping your clients travel together. Hopefully we can help you earn even more rewards for those bookings now! Register and learn more at spg.com/double.

During the SPG Pro Double Double promotional period, registered members can:

• Earn two Starpoints for every $3 of eligible revenue spent on qualifying meetings or events

• Reach elite status faster by earning two eligible nights for every 20 consumed group room nights

Just one year in, SPG Pro has generated significant revenue, grown our member base in 189 countries, and rewarded enough points to our SPG Pro members to book more than 150,000 room nights. We sincerely hope you are taking full advantage of this program and earning your just rewards. Remember SPG points you earn when booking eligible rate plans can be used to redeem for free nights, free flights, gift cards and SPG Moments… or why not thank your most valued client and use SPG points to treat them to a well needed spa treatment.

SPG Pro has revolutionized the B2B loyalty space as the first program of its kind to reward members across all segments for all business booked at Starwood, and provides customers with the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of SPG membership.

SPG Pro offers meeting and travel professionals the ability to earn SPG elite status, upgrades and Starpoints for B2B business booked at any of Starwood’s 1,250 properties around the world. Plus, any SPG member who books an eligible event, whether that’s a corporate business meeting, holiday party, wedding, family reunion or social event– regardless of if they are a professional meeting planner or not – will earn Starpoints and status for the business they influence.

On our first anniversary we wish to say thank you to all our valued travel professional partners… there’s still time to make 2015 a banner year for us all and for YOU to earn those very valuable SPG points. to enroll in SPG Pro visit spg.com/pro
